The Atlanta Braves had another busy day in the front office as the club agreed to a contract extension with President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Alex Anthopoulos. The contract extension runs through the 2031 season.

“I’d like to thank Terry (team CEO) for his continued support and trust,” Anthopoulos said of his newest contract. “The Braves are an incredible organization to be a part of, and I’m proud of the success we’ve achieved together,” he added. “I strive to bring another World Series to Atlanta.”

Anthopoulos joined the Braves in 2017 and has since made quite the name for himself across professional sports.
